or may not come out of washington? >> well, thanks. i think the reality is we're going to go over the cliff. the only issue is how long do we stay over the cliff? if it's 60 days, 90 days, that's a big problem for the economy, for the market, and i think you want to raise cash. i recommend starting with a cash weight of at least 10% and go up 2.5% each week, depending on whether or not they can come to agreement. i mean, i think ultimately it probably will come to agreement, but let's face it, obama's not going to get inaugust -- inaugurated until the 21st, and boehner thinks the real deadline is february or early march. that's a time frame to look for, and the reality is if you look at the markets over the last while, they are correlated between the commodity markets, oil, bonds, stocks, and that has not been the case for many, many years, and so it's really one trade. there's a macro trade. what's going on in the u.s. with the fiscal cliff, and before that, it was all about europe. david: larry, your picks, disney and direct tv, i know you like the vegas stocks, las vegas sans,

connell and john boehner representing the republicans. brianna keilar is live from washington. is anybody optimistic that a deal could be done today around a table? >> i will tell you the optimism is sort of sinking. senate majority leader harry reid said he doesn't see how it can get done by january 1st. we heard from president obama before he left from his vacation that he was optimistic. logistically the white house will tell you it's possible. when you listen to what you're hearing some of these congressional leaders say, there's a lot of posturing laying blame to the other side if we do go over the cliff. take a listen. >> republicans are not about to write a blank check for anything senate democrats put forward because we find ourselves at the edge of the cliff. >> we are here in washington working while the members of the house of representatives are out watching movies, watching their kids play soccer, basketball, doing all kinds of things. they should be here. >> now, house speaker john boehner is saying the senate needs to just take up a house pass bill that has already passed t
